Curious Josh: Jelly vs. Jam...

Curious as to what the first two posts in this series were? Check them out here...

Just because I've always been a "jam" guy, but never known why... Here's the difference between the two:

Jelly is made from fruit juice and so has no fruit bits. Jam is made by boiling fruit and does have fruit bits. Preserves are basically the same as jam unless you buy them from Smucker's, in which case if it's got seeds in it it's preserves and if it doesn't it's jam. Marmalade typically is a citrus-based preserve, sometimes containing the rind, but other fruits can be used.

And now you know...
